And now for another Transformers Prime toy sighting! Our friends in Canada ought to start keeping their eyes open when they visit Toys R Us - the ultra-cool Transformers Prime Voyagers have started hitting TRUs in Canada according to the latest news from Cybertron.CA! This first Voyager assortment features the excellent Bulkhead - seriously, he's a fantastic toy - and one of the best Voyager Class Optimus Prime toys ever made, in this writer's opinion. Matrix holder of Cybertron.CA made the first sighting in a TRU in Ontario. Let's hope they make it to the US soon as well!

Next week is the week! I'm predicting them to all be out by Wednesday, or at least Cliffjumper.

Also, anyone know if the box the Cliffjumper wave is released in says W1.5 or just W2?

Here's hoping they start appearing in USA stores and on Amazon!

Still looking for the first wave of the Prime Deluxes here.My local TRU stores suck so bad.

Awesometastic! Wish I lived in Canada... Here's hoping they start showing up in the US along with Cliff and the Entertainment next week!

*cries in corner waiting for US releases of these*

Canada seems to be the place to get toys early these time of year! Well, I hope they show up in America soon. They're cutting it pretty close to Christmas, you'd think these would've been out by October as originally planned so they could maximize sales. Plus, they're freaking amazing toys and I want some of my own.

I'm SO looking foward to getting Optimus and Bulkhead when they come out sooner or later.
Kostya
Dammit! I don't have the fifty-five dollars I'll need to get all these toys.
G1Wheeljack
Only a matter of time before they hit US retail, I'd wager before 2012.
ORIO
Looking forward to a US release as well. Cliffjumper too!

This reminds me of this time last year.

Last year Canada did not get any of the new Generations figures, Warpath, Scourge, Kup, Thundercracker, Wheeljack. Actually they just started popping out in Walmarts now, a whole year later :O . All the while these figures were warming pegs all over America.

Now the tables flipped and Canada has all the Prime figures while they are barely out in the States.

I rememeber how it felt last year so my heart goes out to my American collectors.
Alucard77
Damnnn youuuu Cannnnnadddaaaaa.

BTW, if it make you feel better, this time last year, Warpath, Scourge, Kup, Thundercracked and Wheeljack were not warming shelves by me or anyone else I know in the east coast.

Pfft, uninformed Canadians should not get these before us USAers. USA... USA... USA.... You hear me Hasbro!

I am gonna go and cry now.

Thanks man. Honestly I can say Im glad we (canada) are getting them fast...kinda make up for hasbro being slow on that last wave of generation showing up.

Which TRU?

When it comes to TFP shipping, I say: "Screw you Canada!" loljk

But seriously, why does Canada get everything first? And usually, it's stuff that I want!

Heres another reason why I want to live in Canada...

First off, if you are like the rest of us, it is always the stuff you want because anything that is out that you don't have is stuff you really want. lol

Second, this may not be the first time Canada has gotten something first but the norm is USA first.

The reason hasbro is releasing these in Canada first is because they will make a higher profit in Canada then in the states. So it is easy to end the year on a high note. I mean at HTS your buying deluxes at $10 shipped. In Canada they are $19 not shipped.

Hey Al, How are you enjoying your TF: P Cliffjumper?

Mine is $19.20 of pure awesome and fun.

Am I the only one who does not like this new trend of packaging Voyagers in robot mode??

In other news, these will be mine!

326372 is the sku for the voyagers. I picked them up from the new TRU in Burlington. Second largest in Canada by square foot...behind the one in the West Edmonton Mall. They restock fairly well. I love getting these figures so quickly...I still have them on preorder from Automaton, those will be for my MOC and MIB collection. Yeah things are more expensive here but I make over twice what the guy in the American branch of my company makes for the exact same job...but with benefits too. so it all evens out I think. Oh yeah, we're paying between $4.68 - $5.00 a gallon for gas...that sucks.

I've read over and over in the past that what the retailer pays Hasbro is fixed and has no other effect on their profits..it is what it is...the retailer is the one that can make more profit with higher prices or offer the sales prices..i.e. Door Busters with BOGO's etc...so I don't think Hasbro is getting anything more by distrubuting in Canada first...more than likely their dist. ctr. just got things out quicker..and good for them and all our Canadian members.

Why are some people being dicks over canada getting these first anyway?

Personally I think it's great that canada (who in the past has gotten screwed over when it comes to this sort of thing) is getting these.

This. I'm glad Canada's lucky to get these first!

Are the Prime toys exclusive to Toys R Us? I don't feel like wasting gas for just Toys R Us every other day.
SPLIT LIP
Argh! Too much, too fast!
StayingInTheBox
Canada wins another round!

I can't wait for these to hit US stores. I have my coupons and gift cards for TRU ready to go!

These First Edition figures are exclusive to TRU, however I do believe the mainline of TFP will be available at most major retailers when it comes out in March.
TornadoQuakeX
Great news! I was getting worried they wouldn't hit shelves until next year. Hopefully that won't be the case for the US.

Umm I know you are not talking to me.

If season 2 compares to season 1, TF: Prime will be my all time fav show surpassing Beast Wars which has held top billing for me since the beginning.

And I know you aren't talking about me because I have been on board with this series since the start. Which is why I have all the deluxes available world wide, bought at retail, and Alucard does not.

Oh! Sorry for the misunderstanding mate! I just mistook you for someine else that dislikes the show sorry!
Transbot90210
I love the show, there is just a little joshing around going on between Al and I.

He's just upset cuz he can't find any of his $10 TF Prime toys while Imma having oodles of fun enjoying my $19.20 TF Prime toys.


P.S. Al, TRU has had sales since the toys release I haven't paid more than $9 a figure and I can't wait to get my grubby little transhands on those $20 voyagers....only available in Canada ...ZING

Yes, I like others to share in my pain. You know, the pain of not having cj, or megs, or the kids, or even deluxe optimus, even though he will be quickly replaced with the voyager.

You only know the pain of the voyagers. So cry those tears. Cry them hard!

I'll definitely be grabbing a Bulkhead right away. I'm going to try to wait for the inevitable store exclusive optimus voyager deco (there will be one at some point).
